    I am guessing it is the same as the 'safely remove hardware' thing for windows.

    it closes any writing left to the file system to ensure you do not corrupt your file system or have any corrupted files.

    Removing a memory card without unmounting it can ruin the card if something is reading/writing on it. I did this by mistake with a flash drive on my computer.
